Chapter 147: Deceiving Uncle Sheng (46)
When Sheng Qianmo saw the few red marks on her white wrists, he immediately became serious.
“Are you hurt?”
Shu Nuan shook her head.
Seeing this, Sheng Qianmo frowned.
“That guy just let you go without doing anything?”
Shu Nuan gently nodded.
Although nothing had happened to her, Sheng Qianmo would not let this matter end easily. After all, this person had dared to touch one of his people.
So Sheng Qianmo let her describe the incident from beginning till end. Upon finding that she had been kidnapped outside the academy, his face became even colder, and he said, “This Prince will pursue this matter.”
Hearing this, Shu Nuan looked at him.
“Can I go to the Li Store now?”
He gave her a meaningful glance, seeing which Shu Nuan withdrew her hand and pursed her lips.
“I’m really fine.”
Sheng Qianmo ignored the disobedient little thing and went to find ointment to apply to her reddened wrists.
During this period, Shu Nuan took a glance at him secretly. But when she looked at him quietly for the first time, Sheng Qianmo looked up at her suddenly. She bowed her head and whispered, “If I don’t go there, the shop-owner’s wife will deduct my earnings.”
Sheng Qianmo looked at her with calm eyes and said in a deep voice, “Did This Prince not let you eat and drink, or did I not give you money? How much money are you short of?”
Sheng Qianmo had been displeased when he’d found that she had been kidnapped so easily. And now, this unappreciative little thing still wanted to go against him.
Shu Nuan coped with his rebuking. She looked at him without pursing her lips, as her eyes slowly turned red, but she didn’t cry and didn’t say anything, instead lowering her head again slowly.
Sheng Qianmo gazed at her, as she suppressed the feeling of injustice in her heart. He eased his attitude and said, “Is This Prince’s tone serious?”
Shu Nuan lowered her head and said, “Your Highness is not short of money, and I am very needy. But I won’t accept money from Your Highness. I want to be able to live a little upright and not be told that I depended on Your Highness all along the way.”
Sheng Qianmo stared at her and didn’t speak for a while.
Then, he stretched out his hand and raised her chin, staring at her as he said, “You got admitted to the Yulin Academy on your own. First Class, on your own. This Prince didn’t help with anything, understand?”
Shu Nuan looked at him without blinking as her eyes turned misty, but her gaze brightened.
After a while, she said, “No, without Your Highness, I am nothing.”
After saying this, she took the initiative and mustered up the courage to cuddle his neck, lying prone in his arms as she called him in a low voice, “Prince…”
‘Will you always keep me like this?’
She closed her eyes and did not dare to ask such an outrageous question. So she swallowed her sentence and replaced it with another.
“Will you eat the snacks I make when I’m back?”
After all this, she still wanted to coax him so he’d promise that she was allowed to work, and her method was deliberately so pleasing. Sheng Qianmo couldn’t stop her, but because of the kidnapping, he didn’t trust her to go alone. He said, “Let Li Yuan take you.”
Seeing that Sheng Qianmo had agreed, Shu Nuan wouldn’t say anything more. She nodded and agreed as well.
However, she also hadn’t expected that Sheng Qianmo would’ve made such childish behavior.
